The University of Colorado Boulder harbors an inspiring and creative environment where students are challenged to be innovative and think outside the box. Graduate students can take advantage of multiple resources located within the department including the graduate office, Classics library, conference room, teaching assistant office, and two Ph.D. offices. As a result, the graduate students have created a friendly, fun, and extremely intelligent environment where individuals enjoy hanging out together both inside and outside the Classics context. Professors and faculty are also friendly and supportive. They prepare students as Classics colleagues, and they host multiple lectures by prominent scholars from a variety of institutions.

Transportation and travel are of no concern, and there are a plethora of fun and inexpensive activities, like hikes, bike rides, and strolls around Pearl Street. If you want more options, Denver is only 25 miles away and easily accessible via public transportation, while the natural glories of Rocky Mountain National Park are a scant 40 miles to the north. Overall, the Classics department at the University of Colorado is an excellent place to experience new things, meet new people, and share new ideas.
